Versarien Part 2 - A Deep Dive on Versarien's busines

Saturday, Jan 27 2018 by

Due to the size of my research i'm splitting it into 3 posts

This post is part of a series on my research on Versarien that i've put on Stockopedia

Part 1 - A Background to the Graphene Marketplace

Part 2 - A deep dive into Versariens Business

Part 3 - Graphene Competitors

ADVFN - There are some really good ADVFN posters who are long term investors in VRS, have attended shareholder open days / AGMs and have excellent insights and research that they share especially Superg1, bones, Atoxyl, compounup & severnof9 who have informed a lot of my own research and I have shamelessly copied some of their insights. Obviously, you have to wade through a load of rampers, derampers and nutters that seem to frequent ADVFN but hopefully we can get a decent level of discussion and sharing of insights going on Stockopedia instead.

Finally, it’s a bit nerve wracking doing my first posts on Stockopedia especially with the quality of writers here already – I’m dyslexic and it’s something I struggle so hopefully you find enough quality within the quantity! You can find me @MikeWBrenner where I retweet a lot of my graphene / Versarien research

Stunning work. Can VRS produce enough at the right price point for this product (graphene) to become mass market? Guess you have to also think about dilutive placings along the way. Happy to be shot down!

I think that the CEO must be confident in doing so if he is going to the largest emerging technology conference in the world and presenting the following on 11 - 12 Apr 2018:

Solving The Graphene Scale-Up Problem
Presentation Summary With graphene enhanced materials demonstrating significant benefits, the current challenge is to scale up production volumes to meet anticipated demand. In the 2 years Versarien's Nanene production capacity has increased 1000 fold. Predictions for graphene demand for the next decade are in the 1000's of tonnes per annum. This presentation will discuss how Versarien will meet those demands.
